MEET YOUR TRAVEL ADVISORS
GINA DONATI, SEATTLE, WA
Owner, Travel Advisor
I started my career with a passion for wine, food, history, culture, and travel. After working in the travel industry for several years, I decided to enhance that experience by studying enology because I was interested in the wine culture of the Pacific Northwest.
To gain more experience, I decided to work as a manager/wine buyer in the wine industry to see where that role would lead me. In this role, I developed relationships with several outstanding winemakers worldwide, which led to traveling to some of the most prized wineries in Europe and the United States. To enhance my wine expertise, I received my certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers in wine knowledge.
Traveling to vineyards and wineries and experiencing stunning locations gave me a new perspective on my love of travel, food, and culture; I entered the life of a travel advisor and created my business to share all of these beautiful places I experienced with the world!
I chose to be a travel consultant not only for my love of travel but for the sheer joy of listening to my client’s excitement and experiences they received after a trip that I arranged for them!
